The M25 motorway, or London Orbital, is a 117-mile (188 km) orbital motorway that almost encircles Greater London in the United Kingdom. The motorway was first mooted early in the 20th century, a few sections, based on the now abandoned London Ringways plan, were constructed in the early 1970s and it was completed in 1986. The M25 is one of the world's longest orbital roads[1] and one of the busiest and most congested parts of the British motorway network. 196,000 vehicles were recorded in a single day near London Heathrow Airport. Plans to widen additional sections to eight lanes (four each way) were scaled back in 2009 in response to rising costs.[2]
